Crossing Borders

Poland shares a border with Belarus, Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Russia (the Kaliningrad exclave), and Lithuania. Poland is a member of the Schengen Area, and so are Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Poland. If you’ll need a Schengen visa to visit Poland, you’ll also be able to visit these four other countries. 

Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia are not members of the Schengen Area. Each of these countries has its own visa policy, so you may or may not need a visa to enter them, depending on your citizenship. If you plan to visit one of these Poland’s neighbors during your rental period, we strongly advise you to get in touch with your Ministry of Foreign Affairs in advance to find out about the visa requirements.

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car. Learn more about cross-border rentals in our FAQ section.

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Poland is an Economy, but Compact and Mini are also popular choices.

Depending on the experience of the driver and a nature of the stay. (In my opinion smaller cars are definitely a better choice in the city) Within the city - parking spaces are very narrow compared to US and sometimes hard to come by. Local transportation is pretty well developed. I always enjoy traveling aroung the country in my rental cars rented in Warsaw. Since Poland joined EU expressways are excellent and county roads( also in good condition) deliver unforetable memories.
